Antique Adventures of Williamsburg visited Tuckahoe Plantation and Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden

Antique Adventures of Williamsburg explored the house, extensive outbuildings and gardens of Tuckahoe Plantation, built in 1730 by William Randolph, the son of Thomas Randolph. Tuckahoe, situated on a bluff overlooking the James River, was the boyhood home of Thomas Jefferson from 1745 to 1752, when his family moved there to care for the orphaned Randolph children after the death of their father. The group, some of them which are pictured, then had lunch at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens and shopped in the amazing Garden Shop before touring the 50 acres of spectacular gardens and domed conservatory.
